She is the G.O.A.T
She came highly recommended. Ms Lisa knows her position and she did a wonderful job of representing my family. Everything she told us would happen, happened. She was very professional, knowledgeable and experienced with our type situation. If you’re looking for someone to go over and beyond, this would be her law firm

The Best
Lisa Johnson is a person of integrity with a wonderful sense of humor. She is very professional but also personal, and was available when I needed her. I could not have asked for better representation!

Honesty and integrity
Lisa A. Johnson professionally, and successfully, handled two legal matters for me a few years ago. Recently, we spoke twice about a complicated legal issue and she advised me to not go ahead at this time. She could have let me proceed and charge legal fees, but instead she provided her honest opinion. I highly recommend her services.

Lisa is awesome
Lisa worked my case September 2017 She really cared about my children in my opinion she goes over and above she is very passionate about her work and she is around when you need to talk to her she was very sick and showed up to court that day anyway. I am so grateful for that she listens to what you have to say. I am so happy that she was my children's attorney I would use her again and would definitely recommend her to some one else... Thank you Lisa

Very caring
I usually don't post on sites such as this, but with "Lucille" and "a client" posts, I felt I had to let everyone know what a great person Ms. Johnson is. She takes every client's issues to heart and bends over backwards to do what she can for each of them. I personally consulted with her on a family matter. She very quickly told me she could not assist me, but directed me to several very good folks that could. She met with me AFTER hours and on her own time. On top of that, she followed up with me to make sure I didn't need anything else. In addition, per her demographics, Ms. Johnson plainly states she has been an attorney for 6 years, not "100 years". As well, she states she does "family, Medical malpractice, Divorce, and separation"....not criminal! I highly recommend Ms. Johnson if you have any of those needs. Doing what I do for a living, I'm very familiar with most of the attorneys in the metro Atlanta area and I also know that Ms. Johnson does not "miss" court appearances.....however, as in almost every other attorney's life, there are times when one can become double-booked. All courts also understand this, and have always made adjustments to accommodate for the involved attorneys best they can. Ms. Johnson, along with most attorneys, don't just "miss" a court date, unlike some people who waive their hearings to just put off the inevitable.

Wow
Wow she returned all calls even on Sundays I am so happy I hired her she took very good care of me and my children. My divorce was a very difficult case and the other side had no chance she knew how to present her case while the other lawyer fumbled her case lisa was on the ball. She also worked to calm my fears and was so smart she is a hidden gem in Hiram.

ETHICAL ATTORNEY
This attorney is true to her word. She worked diligently on my case. She was unfront and honest. She returned my calls and my emails. I would most definitely recommend this attorney. She is a class act.
Posted by anonymous | July 10, 2012
Thank you for everything you did!
Ms. Johnson is a fantastic lawyer. I came to her with a very difficult divorce situation and she handled it with the utmost class and professionalism. I never had to wonder what was going on with me case because, unlike some lawyers I have worked with in the past, she always returned phone calls or answered my emails. From the moment I met with Ms. Johnson, I knew my case would be handled flawlessly (and it was). She instantly made me feel at ease during this very difficult and emotional time for me and my family. I can never thank her enough for everything she did and I recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney. You will not be disappointed with this law firm's legal services.

Not good
I would not reccommend Ms. Johnson to family, friends or a stranger. I do not feel that she knows the laws, but trys to convince you she does. Ms. Johnson is really bad about telling you how she has done this, and this and this with another case..well that is all great but what are you doing for MY case? Never any answers, and never any solutions. I felt she was rude and did not believe me. I also always had to talk to her receptionist who would literally tell me one thing and Ms. Johnson would end up telling me another. I have many emails and documents where I can stand behind what I am saying with them saying the wrong things. I also was told that I was sent things that I never was, as I have everything in order.. and of course these things were majorly important. She also filed my case incorrectly, she also would make decisions and not even tell me about what she had decided for me.

I can't recommend her
A classic case of bait and switch. Lisa offered me assurances that my case was settled before I came to a court room. Only to surprise me on the very day of the case with an about face to her earlier statement. She then tried to encourage me to take a plea without looking at the entirety of the evidence in that case. I kept on saying no, and she kept on pressing. At the end I was given misleading information and frankly, as someone who has never been convicted of any criminal act, I felt like she took advantage. The last memory I have of her is asking cash money without offering a receipt for her services.

D- Attorney
I hired this attorney for a criminal defense case. First off, Ms. Johnson does not know the law yet portrays to have been a practicing attorney for 100 years. She is slack in that she refuses to return calls once she is hired. Ms. Johnson is rarely on time to court, if she even shows up! Hopefully, this attorney will go back into medicine and let's hope she's better at that!!

Disappointed
I was a client at this law firm. I had a terrible time getting any one to call me back and Ms. Johnson even forgot that I had a hearing one day so it was postponed. I have spent a lot of money on this attorney and I am VERY dissatisfied and disappointed. Please beware!
Response from Lisa Johnson November 12, 2015
Thank You for your feed back. However, I must say that I have never missed a hearing. Unfortunately, being an attorney, it is often that the opposing side gets very upset at an outcome. The validity of this review is very suspect. With these type of sites, anyone can post a review even if they were never your client.
